Lizzie, one of our room volunteers, tells us her role is great for fuelling her interest in Tudor History. She started by visiting Coughton Court, fell in love with the place and  then joined us as a volunteer.

As a bonus she also meets lots of nice people, visitors, volunteers and staff who are all appreciative of her time and the information she shares.

Rosemarie loves to interact with visitors on a personal level by selling raffle tickets. She feels she is helping in a direct way as the money you give directly benefits Coughton Court. 
 
She says “A little bit of the stained glass window is because of my efforts”.
